New method converts carbon dioxide into chemical
A team of researchers led byMeeneshSingh at University of Illinois Chicago has discovered a way to convert 100% of carbon dioxide captured fromindustrial exhaustinto ethylene, a key building block for plastic products. Their findings are published inCell Reports Physical Science. While ...
Novel perovskite catalysts could be used wherever methane and carbon dioxide are produced simultaneously
CO2 and methane can be turned into valuable products. But until now the catalysts required for such reactions quickly lose their effectiveness. TU Wien has now developed more stable alternatives. Wherever the production of harmful greenhouse gases cannot be prevented, they should be converted ...
Technology sequesters CO₂ emissions
In plants, natural photosynthesis binds carbon dioxide (CO2) to organic compounds, which can then be converted into glucose or starch. These useful molecules can be sequestered, storing the carbon in a solid form. Artificial photosynthesis mimics this process by reducing the greenhouse gas CO2– ...
High-efficiency utilization of CO2 facilitates the reduction of CO2 concentration in the global atmosphere and hence the alleviation of the greenhouse effect. The chemical utilization of CO2, which refers to converting CO2 into value-added chemicals and liquid fuels, has a distinct and direct CO2 ...
“We believe that our study provides an unprecedented opportunity for developing a new class of inexpensive photocatalysts for CO₂ reduction consisting of earth-abundant elements”
The carbon dioxide (CO2) released into the atmosphere during fossil fuel burning is a leading cause of global warming. One way to address this growing threat is to develop CO2 reduction technologies, which convert CO2 into useful chemicals, such as CO and formic acid (HCOOH). In particular, ...
Emissions of greenhouse gases contribute significantly to global warming. Not only carbon dioxide (CO2) but also fluorine-containing gases – including so-called per- or polyfluorinated hydrocarbons, or PFCs – have a significant share in this development. Researchers at the Institute of Organic ...
Prizewinner from the Max Planck Institute in Marburg, Germany is working on capturing carbon dioxide and converting it into new chemical building blocks using biocatalysts
Merck announced the winner of the 2022 Future Insight Prize in the category of “Energy”. The €1million prize was awarded at the “Curious2022 – Future Insight” scientific conference in Darmstadt, Germany, to Professor Tobias Erb (43), Director at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial ...
In the context of global concern about climate change and greenhouse gas control, a new technology for CO2 capture, utilization, and storage has attracted broad attention. Ionic liquids, composed of only cations and anions, are considered a new type of CO2 adsorbent due to their ultralow vapor ...
Such work will help convert an atmospheric pollutant into fuel for vehicles, and chemical feedstocks for industry
Researchers from the University of Tsukuba and collaborating partners experimentally measured hydrogenation of metal-adsorbed formate. This development will facilitate practical conversion of carbon dioxide pollutant into methanol fuel. Carbon dioxide pollution continues to change the global ...
Carbon dioxide or CO2 can potentially be used as a feedstock to be converted into carbon-neutral ‘solar fuels’ that store energy from the sun. But for them to be competitive with fossil fuels, the chemical reaction that performs this conversion needs much more efficient catalysts. Researchers ...
